New Mexico works to stay on the cutting edge of chile production

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Chile is a top crop in New Mexico, and researchers are working to make sure it stays that way. With new investments into research and crop programs, New Mexico is working to keep the green flowing within the state’s agriculture economy.

Tuesday, the New Mexico Department of Agriculture announced more than $500,000 in funding for seven different projects focusing on specialty crops. The idea is to enhance the competitiveness of New Mexico’s specialty crops, including chile.

“With New Mexico being the top chile pepper-producing state in the nation, we look forward to the projects furthering important crop-related research,” New Mexico Agriculture Secretary Jeff Witte said in a press release. “Spearheaded by our state’s land-grant university, farmers’ marketing association and nursery and greenhouse association, projects will also address and enhance the importance of food safety, value-chain coordination and education in support of specialty crops.”

Some of the projects being funded include using scientific research to bolster New Mexico’s chile industry. For example, one project is working to overcome one challenge of trying to grow chiles beneath solar panels.

In theory, chile could be grown on the land beneath large solar panels. This idea, called agrivoltaics, would allow farmers to get two products from the same amount of land: They could grow chile and generate electricity at the same time.

One unknown that could potentially present a problem comes in the form of a virus. Curly Top Virus, which can infect chiles, beets, and a range of other broad-leaf plants, damages crops and is spread by beet leafhoppers. There seems to be some connection between how much sunlight hits a plant and how likely it is that a leafhopper will land on the plant. So, researchers at New Mexico State University (NMSU) are planning on using grant funds to run experiments to see how solar panels – and the shade they generate – might affect chile health.

Funds from the New Mexico Department of Agriculture will go to other projects as well. For example, one project will use funds to try to minimize microorganism and pathogen contamination in chiles.

“The NMSU Food Safety Laboratory has established procedures that can save time and money for New Mexico chile producers and processors,” Willis Fedio, the NMSU Food Safety Laboratory Director and associate professor in the Department of Extension Family and Consumer Sciences, said in a press release. “At present, however, the laboratory is unable to provide routine testing services to most of the chile industry, because the lab is not ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 17025 accredited. Although our laboratory procedures and standard operating procedures are sound, we need to complete the ISO 17025 accreditation process and include methods we developed for chile peppers in our scope of accreditation to better serve the chile industry.”

Overall, this year, a total of $563,843 in federal funding will support the various projects. The money is managed through the New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.

UNLV Runnin' Rebels (11-3) vs. New Mexico Lobos (14-1)

The Line: New Mexico Lobos -4.5 / UNLV Runnin' Rebels +4.5 ; Over/Under: - (Click here for latest betting odds)

The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels and the New Mexico Lobos meet Saturday in college basketball action from the Pit. UNLV is currently 11-3 on the season. The Rebels lost to San Diego State in their last game. As for New Mexico, they’re 14-1 after a loss to Fresno State on Tuesday. Check back all season long for free college basketball picks at Sports Chat Place.

UNLV got off to a great start this season, plowing through their first 10 games with a string of victories. The Rebels would then lose to San Francisco, beat Southern Miss, then fall to San Jose State and San Diego State.

Last Saturday versus San Diego State, UNLV was behind 44-33 by the break. The Rebels outscored the Aztecs 34-32 from there and ended up losing 76-67. Luis Rodriguez put up 24 points with six rebounds.

Over on the New Mexico side, they opened up with wins over Southern Utah, South Alabama, SMU, Jacksonville State, North Dakota State, Northern Colorado, Saint Mary’s, Western New Mexico, UTSA, San Francisco, Iona, Prairie View, Colorado State and Wyoming.

The Lobos took their first loss of the year on Tuesday versus Fresno State. New Mexico trailed by a score of 36-32 at halftime and ended up with a 71-67 defeat. Jamal Mashburn, Jr. led the team with his 22 points and four rebounds.

PICK: I’m probably going to stick with New Mexico. The Lobos didn’t play terribly in their loss to Fresno State, though they did allow the Bulldogs to shoot 50 percent from the field and got out-rebounded 31-30. The defeat also broke a string of four straight games with 76 or more points scored. That said, New Mexico is a talented squad and should be able to bounce back pretty well from their first loss. As for UNLV, they’re just 1-3 in their last four games but they only lost one of those by more than three points (76-67 versus SDSU). I like the Rebels to be i the thick of things here until late in the game. Should be a pretty good matchup.

UNLV at New Mexico picks and predictions

New Mexico 80, UNLV 72

PASS.

New Mexico is 10-0 on the road and is rightfully a heavy favorite here.

BET NEW MEXICO -5.5 (-105).

New Mexico is coming off its first loss, but it still has an explosive offense, sitting 25th in the nation in field goal percentage (48.8%).

The Lobos have covered their last 3 home games, so couple their offensive efficiency with their success at home, and there’s a strong case to be made. New Mexico has had just 4 of 15 games end within 6 points as well, so it has been able to consistently win by more than this amount.

On the other hand, UNLV has failed to cover 2 straight and struggles with its offensive efficiency, ranking 199th in field goal percentage (44.3%). It is 1-1 ATS as an underdog this season. The Rebels are also 1-1 on the road this season.

Put it all together, and the Lobos’ success at home coupled with the Rebels’ recent struggles suggest playing NEW MEXICO -5.5 (-105).

LEAN OVER 149.5 (-110).

If there’s something both teams have consistently done, it is cover the projected Over.

UNLV is 9-4 O/U while New Mexico is 9-5 O/U. The Rebels have gone Over in 7 of their last 8 games that featured a total. New Mexico has gone Over in 5 straight and has scored at least 75 in 4 of those 5.

Given its offensive efficiency and inability to defend the 3 (New Mexico ranks 160th in opponents’ 3-point field goal percentage), back the OVER 150.5 (-110).

Girls basketball: Interloper Hobbs takes home Metro championship trophy

This was not necessarily the starting five Hobbs High School girls basketball coach Joe Carpenter imagined he’d have in the middle of the 2022-23 season.

But the young Eagles not only have adapted to their environs, they are flourishing. And if they hadn’t already, they’ve now put the rest of Class 5A on notice.

No. 1-ranked Hobbs started five sophomores — many of them already having solid postseason experience — in the Albuquerque Metro Championship game on Saturday night against No. 3 Sandia.

The Eagles, led by 5-foot-11 Kyndle Cunningham and 5-10 Jayla David, pulled away from the Matadors in the second half, and tournament newcomer Hobbs won the metro title with a 66-57 victory over the Matadors at Albuquerque High.

The Eagles won four games in five days — a more physically demanding tournament than even the state tournament — to capture the humongous Metro trophy.

“Coming into it, no one had any hope or belief in us to win that trophy,” said Cunningham, who finished with 10 points. “It means a lot to us that we did.”

David, who finished with 17 points, was even more succinct.

“We were more focused on letting the haters know they’re wrong,” she said.

Hobbs is unbeaten against New Mexico competition. Its only two losses came to schools in Texas.

And this first half of the season has been outstanding, all things considered. Senior guard Wisdom Anthony suffered a season-ending knee injury just as this campaign was beginning. This, on top of the transfer of senior center Aniya Joseph to a school in San Antonio during the offseason.

“These kids are very dedicated to basketball,” Carpenter said. “The very little bit of coaching I have to do, they absorb it.”

The Eagles won Saturday’s final in the third quarter.

The close and competitive first half, which featured 10 lead changes, ended with Sandia in front 31-30. But Hobbs outscored the Matadors 14-1 in the third quarter, and the only reason Sandia didn’t have a scoreless quarter was because it made a free throw with 1.7 seconds left.

Sandia was 0 of 10 from the field in the third quarter, and 1 of 4 from the line.

Hobbs, meanwhile, got eight points from Cunningham (4 of 4 from the field) in that third quarter. And then David scored 10 of her 17 points in the fourth quarter (going 4 of 5 from the floor) as the Eagles withstood a charge from Sandia (11-2), which got as close as seven at 46-39 with 5:50 to go, but no closer.

Sophomore guard Sydney Benally led the Matadors — who also have a young but experienced starting lineup— with 26 points.

HOBBS 66, SANDIA 57

HOBBS (14-2): Aliana Armitage 5, Bhret Clay 8, Nakia Mojica 6, Brynn Hargrove 20, Kyndle Cunningham 10, Jayla David 17. Totals 22 18-24 66.

SANDIA (11-2): Amari Sanderson 3, Malia Meadowcroft 2, Hope Giddings 9, Audri Wright 13, Martina Sando 4, Sydney Benally 26. Totals 22 7-13 57.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – More than 15,000 fans packed The Pit to cheer on the Lobo men’s basketball team against the University of Nevada Saturday.

The Lobos were the only undefeated college basketball team in the country on Monday, but that ended with a heartbreaking loss at Fresno State Tuesday.

By the end of the night, the Lobos lost to UNLV, 77–84.

But, UNM still hit a milestone with a sold-out crowd at home for the first time in years, and there was a ton of energy surrounding the team, and a ton of support.

It was a big night for the team and the fans regardless of the final score. Fans we talked with were beyond excited to be a part of all the hype Saturday night.

Most folks who attended are diehard Lobo fans who were going to be at this game no matter how the season started out.

But others admitted this was their first game of the season and that wasn’t on accident.

“Just the environment, the excitement, you know? We haven’t had anything like this in years where we had a lot of competition, good teams like this, very competitive, just seeing what we have now, it’s good to see that,” said Robbie Vasquez, a Lobo fan.

“Being able to come out and support the Lobos and have all of your family and friends come out, and have a great time and be able to do this is really awesome,” said Angela Gandy, another Lobo fan.

A good portion of fans were waiting outside The Pit before the doors even opened — some even waited an hour in the cold.

One couple told us they flew in from South Carolina just for this game. But most fans were happier to see how many locals came out to support the Lobos.

“It’s wonderful, it’s like the old days!”

“It’s definitely time that the locals got back into the spirit, the spirit, that’s the best way to put it,” said Isaiah, a game attendee.

Despite the last-minute ticket sales, UNM leaders say they’ve been preparing for this matchup for a while.

“We’ve been working with our staff over the last, honestly, probably for the last several years on preparing for this moment,” said UNM Athletic Director Eddie Nuñez. “I’m proud of our coaches. I’m proud of our student athletes. This is a combination of everybody working together to make this possible.”

UNM leaders say they’ve taken extra measures to mitigate traffic backups and long lines at concession stands, but only time will tell if those plans actually work.

So this is what a sold out crowd at The Pit looks like Covering my first sellout with @UNMLoboMBB tonight @KOB4 @NMGameDay @LoboInsider #GoLobos pic.twitter.com/3AXz2VmZvE
